Travel Experience

The idea that started the Jungle Lodge journey began with Gary Leong – one of its founding members, who continues to be a regular visitor of Cat Tien National Park. Since 1996, whenever he was free from corporate business work or travel, Gary would spend time bird watching, pathfinding, mountain biking or simply camping out with the forest rangers in the Park.

Responsibility

Jungle Lodge runs campaigns in nearby communities in an effort to reduce “bush-meat” hunting, employs villagers as guides for jungle trekking, and teaches guests about the park’s ecosystem.

Business Case

We strive to operate our lodges in an energy efficient way by using solar heaters, natural lighting, spring water & wind forces to supplement the energy consumption of our guest & our facilities. We also grow our own vegetables & fruit trees to supplement the food consumption of our staff and customers. We adopt the Bio Dynamic Method when growing our fruit trees & vegetables and we avoid using industrial chemicals, pesticide, fungicide & fertilizers in our planting process. We also offer our guest the choice to consume healthy free range chicken, ducks and other protein sources raised by the local community at Nam Cat Tien Village. This forms part of our plan to promote spiritual & physical wellness for our guest as well as to help increase the economic income of the people in our area.
